Hello - welcome to my blog.  This is where you can see what I've been up to - both at work and out and about at events.


This is where I will share upcoming plans - an overview of what I'm working on and sometimes, the detail too.

I’ve been very tardy in keeping up with my blog……however, it has been a very busy time.

Since Christmas I’ve had two grand-babies – my first grandchildren.  I don’t think there is anything quite like it – I now have a grandson and a granddaughter, and I love them both t...

Well, with Christmas almost upon us, I have now done my last show of 2018 and am working on a number of commissions before turning to my sketchbook to finalise the look of my new collection for Spring 2019.  But less of that as this blog is about the wonderful, fun but...

BCTF 2018 that is!

I don’t know if you’re like me but I plan and prepare for important events like the British Craft Trade Fair.  However, when my preparation is going according to plan I always think that’s a licence to squeeze something else in, so I’m always busy………a...

I’ll be honest with you – hearts have never really been my jewellery of choice.  If you are getting to know me and my work, you’ll know that it’s nature and my imagination that influence my designs.  But my mom used to wear a heart all the time.  I remember her wearing...

Fail to plan, and you plan to fail!!

I get it.  And, since starting my own business I have worked hard to amend my procrastinating ways.  But really, these first couple of months of 2018 have involved so much planning for the year – from researching and booking events t...
